suggested listening: “Homework LP” by Daft Punk

i will start off by saying simply, see Daft Punk live.

it will change your life, and most likely your playlists, forever. i was fortunate enough to see the Rapture open up for Daft Punk at Coney Island, the last summer it will actually be “Coney Island” on a misty summer night and it was the best show i’ve ever seen. show reviews across the blogosphere are also having trouble relating it to any previous live experience.. i’ll never forget it!

tomorrow is my last day at the vii photo agency. not only do i feel that it has helped my photography progress, but the entire experience has afforded me an invaluable context that i am coming to frame my life around. i know how things work, where i want to take my career, and how to do it. thanks to ron, chris, lauren, gary aleks, david, sarah, nadia, frank, nick and the janitors at 236 w27th st for making this summer so amazing. its over. one blink. a few shutters. days turned into weeks, and now 3 months later i feel like a completely new person.

a beautiful girl is flying in thursday to quell the pain of ending at vii.. cant wait to see her.

big shoot is coming together for the end of the summer.. it will be huge.. great minds are converging on brooklyn to produce one of the most thrilling ediorials the world has ever seen. real talk.

here are a bunch of photos from life etc

  7. I saw Daft Punk live last year here in Buenos Aires, and I left the show completely amazed. It is defenetly a life changing concert.
    The music, the lights, the show, it does look like something from another planet.

    I love this one:

    take care matt

  8. hey matt,

    ive just been browsing through your photography with boards of canada in the background. i totally relate to the tie of music and photography.

    it`s always interesting to follow your perspective, keeping focused on less shallow matter, and showing us the world with a curious and suggestive eye. you have really developed a style of your own, and i will be glad to follow your blog.

  11. The first portrait of Piotr is very good, as is the lady in the high heels.

    All good things come to an end, but it’s great to see you’ve got direction. Keep the shutter alive, man!

  12. Want to start your private office arms race right now?

    I just got my own USB rocket launcher 🙂 Awsome thing.

    Plug into your computer and you got a remote controlled office missile launcher with 360 degrees horizontal and 45 degree vertival rotation with a range of more than 6 meters – which gives you a coverage of 113 square meters round your workplace.
    You can get the gadget here:

    Check out the video they have on the page.
